Prepare to have your mind blown by Florida native and assistant principal Star Genleah Swain. Her breath-taking performance of the National Anthem has been shared more than 7 million times on Facebook.
“I was in that moment. I just closed my eyes and started singing,” Swain, who was on vacation in Washington, D.C. with her family, the minister of music at her church, his family and others, told the Tallahassee Democrat.
“One lady had tears in her eyes. I was kind of glad it was over. It was like a sigh of relief,” she said.
Response from her performance has been overwhelming, she explained.
“We pray that great opportunities touch more lives in this way through music. I’m hoping that it will open up floodgates so we can do great things, for myself and others. If I can do this with the gift that God gave me to touch more lives, then that is what I want to do.”
